“I saw the withdrawal of my ministerial nomination as the divine will of Allah,” Dr. Maryam Shettima breaks her silence

Dr. Maryam Shetty, a former ministerial candidate from Kano, has spoken out about her resignation and expressed gratitude to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for even considering her as a candidate in the first place.

She also insisted that her withdrawal had given her hope rather than put an end to her ambitions.

She said, “I have found myself at the center of a crucial moment in Nigeria’s political landscape,” in a statement she released today in Kano. I feel incredibly honored that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu nominated me for a ministerial position.

“Coming from the traditional, conservative regions of northern Nigeria, this represented a significant stride towards a more inclusive national representation.

She posited, “The sheer joy and pride I felt at my nomination were beyond words. It was a validation of my capabilities, a nod to my vision, and a sign that our great nation was ready to embrace a future where young women like me, even from the most traditional parts of Nigeria, can hold positions of influence and power.

“Yet, life, with its characteristic unpredictability, led to the withdrawal of my nomination. To some, this could seem like a setback, but my faith as a devout Muslim guided my understanding.

” I saw it as the divine will of Allah, who I believe grants power as He wishes when He wishes. His plans are always superior to ours.

“Even with this unexpected twist, my gratitude to President Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu for considering me for such an esteemed position remains undiminished.

“The journey doesn’t end here; I believe this is a mere stepping stone, the best is yet to come. My resolve to serve my beloved country, Nigeria, in any capacity I can, is stronger than ever.

“I would like to assure my incredible supporters that this is not an end, it is the dawn of a new era I urge all of us to continue praying for our nation and to stand behind our president as he strives to better Nigeria. Together, let’s press ahead united under our #WEBELIEVE campaign.

“It would be unfair of me here if I fail to acknowledge and appreciate the overwhelming support from international organizations and community, a lot have reached out and I am completely dazed by it all.
